Tarver vs. Dawson Done For October 11 in Connecticut? - Boxing News

This is a very intriguing fight between two langy southpaws. I definitely have Chad Dawsoon winning (best fighter between MW-LHW IMO). Tarver is a bit overrated but he does have skill and will give Chad a slight test in that nature but if Dawson can be patient and look for easy countering opportunities and throw alot of punches in the middle of the ring (since Tarver doesn't throw many punches in the middle of the ring) then I see an easy UD for Dawson...who do you have winning?

Before the Glen Johnson fight i wouldave said easy UD for Dawson but now im not so sure, this is a tough one to call even if i hate Tarver with a passion.

I think Dawson out works him to take a UD win

You have to beat Chad in a similar fashion like a RJ or a PBF...you have to crowd them and make them feel uncomfortable. Tarver can't do that...he likes to sit in the middle of the ring and just counter...pitter pattering his opponent as they run off the ropes. Chad Dawson's mobility and quickness I think will be too much for Tarver. Dawson outworks Tarver to a UD. But I'm praying for a KO :laugh:

I see Dawson winning by a close decision. Tarver is a very careful fighter with great countering abilities so this will be a good fight.

i think dawson will have learnt something from the johnson fight. tarver had a good night with a very bad clinton. so i would go for dawson all the way.

I keep picking against Tarver and he keeps winning. So I will jinx him this time. I pick Tarver by KO in the 8th.
Who did you pick to beat tarver lately? Woods? Santiago? Muriqi?

Tarver rightfully beat all of those.

He will not beat dawson.

I hope Tarver wins. He doesn't always produce the best fights, but he's one of the better, more eloquent trash talkers and I think he seems like a genuinely good guy despite that. Dawson, on the other hand, has nothing that separates him from the pack.
